Default Fujifilm FinePix X100 Reviewed by Digital Photography Review

"The large-sensor, fixed-lens compact isn’t a new idea, of course, and both Sigma’s DP series and the Leica X1 have already visited this territory... So the big question is whether Fujifilm has managed to refine the concept, and produce a camera that’s as compelling to shoot with as its specifications (and looks) suggest."

Here is a very detailed review of the Finepix X100, and it caught a few interesting issues that I did not encounter during my brief time with it. In fact, a few is an understatement: This is the first review I have seen that has an appendix dedicated solely to the bugs and quirks in a camera. Despite the brilliant image quality, I am not sure if I can live with that many flaws. The really odd one is that the camera remembers ISO for each different program mode. So if you were shooting in P at ISO 800 and decide to go to A and shoot at ISO 100, going back to P will have the ISO set at 800. Amazing oversight, if you ask me, as this is the kind of "feature" I do not want in my cameras! Hopefully Fujifilm fixes this, because the images produced are very good indeed.
